I'm sure the larger diameter tube and less restrictive mufflers of the aftermarket manufacturers will give more HP, but it would be interesting to learn the actual HP difference with just the cats eliminated. And I suppose with the cats gone there is the need for adjustment to the ECU, so that would have to come into play as well.
